Not Really, I wish though.. I got the winning Powerball numbers from the Oregon Lottery website. I then went and made a fake Powerball ticket using Adobe Illustrator, I printed the ticket on my color laser printer and the trimmed it out. I then brought the web page up and held the ticket in front of my monitor and snapped away.

LOL.. I am not in trouble.. It was only used for the sake of art. Had I tried to cash it, then there would be trouble...

humm...now you made it public that you tried making copy of the ticket, ahh, you are trouble my friend ;)

I'll take you at your word about that new camera ;)

Well I knew this would not do too great.. But I sure had fun making that ticket and then holding up to the screen and seeing all those numbers match up! I can't wait until it really happens! I will go back to all of you that commented on this image during the challenge and buy you what ever camera system you want!! Any way now onto more serious entries in 2009.

Finally, a picture that doesn't need a lame title to explain how it relates to the challenge! Nice. I do accept donations.

Very clever... I even checked the website and those are indeed the winning numbers. Either you are now one very rich photographer, or you're very good in the art of forgery! Lol

Fancy editing, but not much else for me, personally....Unless you actually DID have the winning ticket.

Can I borrow a few bucks? :P

Now you can actually have the car that is on your desktop :)

I'm from oregon too! Now that your rich, I'd like to be friends. My birthday is 8/10 and a new 5D would be swell... but if you forged it I've never heard of you.

I wish!

I love this shot. It really reflects the theme "Lucky". Just wondering what's the thing behind your hand.
01/08/2009 07:51:39 PM
Very Clever! how did you do this (i'm assuming you didn't actually win lotto) My theory is you took a screen shot of the lotto site and adjusted it.

Well Framed and the lighting is good.

Oh, do share!!!!

No more DPC for you then, huh? Or wait, you'll buy a 1DsIII, all the L lenses you wish and still submit well done fakes :)
01/07/2009 04:16:06 AM
Share the love ... lol

if so i'm guessing you're getting that ferrari f430 on your desktop too! you should buy me one, or hell, a cheaper nissan gt-r ($80K), or even just pay off my college loans for me ($100K)
